______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Samuel L. Wilson, 22, Connersville, Indiana Intoxicated mower driver used son as shield, threatened trooper Indiana State Police arrested a Connersville man who allegedly drove a lawn mower while intoxicated, threatened an off-duty trooper with a knife then used his own son as a human shield. Samuel L. Wilson, 22, allegedly drove the lawn mower with his 5-year-old son on board to the home of Indiana State Police Officer Scott McPheeters about 6:15 p.m. Monday, State Police said in a news release. McPheeters was doing yard work as his children played nearby at his home in rural south western Wayne County. Wilson, who police said was "obviously intoxicated," asked for a tow. McPheeters instead offered to call someone who would to give the man a ride, but police said Wilson turned "vulgar and belligerent." McPheeters took his children into his house and called for backup. McPheeters went outside to wait for officers and try to calm Wilson. Wilson, police said, pulled a knife from his belt and threatened McPheeters. McPheeters persuaded Wilson to put down the knife, but police said Wilson refused to cooperate when Cambridge Police Officer Larry Kuhn arrived. "The man resisted and refused to follow directions, and even attempted to use his five-year-old son as a shield," State Police said in the news release. "Officers were able to get the boy free from the man and take him into custody." Wilson was arrested and taken to the Wayne County Jail. Wilson faces initial charges of intimidation, operating a vehicle while intoxicated with a passenger under age 18 and resisting law enforcement. Police said Wilson's blood-alcohol level tested at more than twice the legal driving limit of .08 percent. The boy was released to his custodial parent, police said. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From Fred Re: DSL and Fax Dear Webby, Can I run a fax machine on the same line as the DSL ? Thanks Fred Dear Fred Yes, sure. They share the same wire, just like your 144 TV channels share the same wire. Only dial-up and voice and fax can't use the same wire at the same time, but any one of them can have DSL piggy-backing on the same wire. Have FUN! DearWebby From a subscriber who does not have a signature line in her mail: A teacher asked her class, "What do you want out of life?" A girl in the back row raised her hand and said, "All I want out of life is four animals." The teacher asked, "Really, and what four animals? The little girl said A mink on my back, a jaguar in the Garage, a tiger in bed and a jackass to pay for all of it." The Teacher Fainted

"All right children, let's take another example," she said. "If I were to get into a man's pocket and take all his money, what would I be?" Little Johnny raises his hand, and with a confident smile, he blurts out, "You'd be his wife!" ____________________________________________________ One night at the dinner table, the wife commented, "When we were first married, you took the small piece of steak and gave me the larger. Now you take the large one and leave me the smaller; You don't love me any more..." "Nonsense, darling," replied the husband, "you just cook a lot better now." ____________________________________________________
